Summer is officially in full swing and we are here for it. After the last couple of years of canceled vacation plans, we all deserve a break with our family and friends. If you’re one of the millions of families relaxing at the beach, hiking mountains, visiting a theme park and anything in between, you might feel a bit out of practice packing up and heading out. Throw in some toddlers and kids into the mix, and it can feel downright overwhelming. Don’t worry, it’s like riding a bike—you’ll get the hang of it again in no time. Plus, OLIKA is here to help with this list of fivesummer travel essentials when you’retraveling with toddlers. 

  1. OLIKA Travel Hand Sanitizer: OLIKAtravel hand sanitizers are hydrating, sustainable, effective, and perfect for disinfecting airplane and train seats, baggage handles, and door knobs with a quick, sweet-smelling spritz! And of course, they’re TSA-friendly. Keep them handy and attach them to your purse, carry on, or even your toddler’s favorite stuffed animal for quick access before those little fingers pick something off the floor and put it into their mouths. Hey, we know it happens and we’re here to help!
  2. Sunscreen: Never Ever leave home without putting on some sunscreen on you and your kiddos. On sunny days, and cloudy days, SPF is a must for all of us, but especially our little ones who are happy to spend the entire summer outdoors.Check out Good Housekeeping list of best sunscreens for kids and babies for 2022. We love the BabyGanics line for their clean-plant derived ingredients. For easy travel and no spillage, grab a  BabyGanics Pure Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 stick.
  3. Snacks, Snacks, and More Snacks. No surprise here, but snacks are a must when traveling with your family. A hungry toddler is not a fun toddler. We definitely recommend  bringing an abundance of non-perishable, tasty and age appropriate snacks for you and your little ones. They’re cheaper and healthier than what you can find at the airport or gas station. Plus, you can make it fun by putting the snacks into a fun container for them, like the  GoBe Snack Spinner
  4. Portable Blackout Curtains: Trust us, this is a life saver not to be forgotten about when traveling to a place you haven’t stayed at before with toddlers. With long summer days, often the sun is going down later then your toddler’s bedtime, or sometimes coming up before wake up time. Be ready with some easy-to-pack travel  blackout curtains. They’re easy to put up and can ensure a smoother bedtime for all of you. 
  5. Bugspray: If you’re traveling this summer (or just sitting in your backyard), undoubtedly your kids will encounter bugs in one form or another. We like to keep bug spray on our travel essentials packing list. Verywell Family shared their list of  The 10 Best Bug Sprays for Kids in 2022. For easy travel, pack the  Cutter All Family Mosquito Wipes. Or for a cleaner, natural spray, check out  Badger Anti-Bug Shake & Spray

Whether you’re hitting the skies or the highways on your way to vacation this summer, you are going to have a great summer. We can’t wait to tag along with you. Let us know where you’re going or just tag us on @olikalife. Here’s to the summer of 2022!
